been a positive force. i noticed bob wood ward in his book when they reached the budget control act in agreement on that, he was reported to have been obnoxious and disrespectful lecturing. it took if you recall vice president biden to finally move this debt and the fiscal cliff issue forward. i don't think he does have the kind of respectful valuation from republicans that you would like to see in the secretary of treasury. >> senator sessions, thanks very much for sharing your shoes. it will be a lively process to be sure. i think chuck hegel's will be the next to be the defense secretary. we will see what happens with john brennan and john kerry to be the next secretary of state. we will be having much more
11:01am
extensive coverage of this later today at 4:00 p.m. in "the situation room." thanks very much for watching. brooke baldwin continues our coverage right now. >> wolf, thank you. the worst flu season in three years rocks the country. doctor sanjay gupta joins me live on what to expect over the next month. i'm brooke baldwin. the news is now. showdown at the white house. find out what happens when joe biden meets the nra and movie execs about gun control. plus one group wants to see pictures of osama bin laden's body. now a court is hearing its case against the president. and -- >> the nominees are -- >> the glitz, the glamour, the controversy. some big names left off the oscar list. you will hear them, right after this.
11:02am
here we go. top of the hour, breaking news. i'm brooke baldwin. we have a school shooting in taft, california. we want to go to george howell. glancing at me e-mail, all schools in kern county, california, all schools on lockdown with the exception of this high school which has been evacuated. >> we are talking about taft union high school, about 45 minutes away from bakersfield where we are getting a lot of our information from kero tv. they have taken calls from students hiding in closets, brooke, while this was happening. we know at this point according to their reporting at least three victims in this case at taft union high school. we also know that the shooter, apparently taken into custody
11:03am
around 9:20 on the west coast. the kern county sheriff's office went door-to-door, room to room trying to secure the school after they got information about this. 9:00 on the west coast. we have been able to confirm through the fire captain one person was treated with minor injuries and unconfirmed reports it happened outside the school on a side street. some report that is it happened inside the school. these are early reports that we are getting and sifting through a lot of information, but we can confirm a least one person treated for minor injuries. a shooter taken into custody and at least three victims in this case. >> to run back to one of your points, we don't know if the shooting happened on campus and in one of the classrooms or nearby. this happened as you mentioned with the shooter, we don't know if he was a student. >> i think that's an important point to make. early reports, we know that it's a shooting at taft union high
11:04am
school. we are trying to sift through to understand whether it happened in the school itself or whether it happened outside the school. we can confirm that there victims in this case and the police department -- >> injuries. thank goodness. nothing worse than that. let us know if you find out more. >> we will. >> happening now, the most controversial here and perhaps confrontational meeting, joe biden will have as his task force figures out what it do to curb gun violence. here he was. vice president and his group talking with the national rifle association representatives. that is happening right now at the white house as i speak. earlier he talked with sports men and hunter groups and all of this talking according to the vice president he said will lead to some action. he did set a firm deadline of next tuesday to give his proposals to the president and biden says there is one recommendation. he keeps hearing comes up and
11:05am
comes up and needs to be made. take a listen. >> there is a surprising, so far, a surprising recurrence of suggestions that we have universal background checks. not just close the gun show loophole, but universal background checks including private sales. >> we should point out that nra meeting that's happening is closed, but you have to wonder if they are trying to get the vice president to open up on this statement he made yesterday when meeting with victims groups. >> the president is going to act or executive orders and executive action can be taken. we haven't decided what that is yet, what we are compiling with the help of the attorney general and all the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action we believe is required. >> biden said executive order
11:06am
meaning some rules could happen without an act of congress. also happening, another task force member eric holder is meeting with the executives from wal-mart and the largest seller of guns and ammunition. now to this. the pastor selected to give the benediction at the upcoming inauguration is backing out. the reverend lewis was receiving harsh criticism over a sermon on homosexuality that he preached in the 1990s. cnn's belief blog is on the phone with me now and eric, this is all over something he said what, 20 years ago? >> at least. mid 90s is when he preached this sermon. it's important to point out that a lot of people were upset when this sermon first circulated earlier in the week and pointed out he thought homosexuality was a sin and something that keeps people from god and comes short of the mark of god's best plan for people's life were some of
11:07am
the words from that sermon and he thought people could change their behaviors and attitudes about homosexuality through coming to jesus. that's a fairly common or a boiler plate mainstream evangelical in the 1990s when he delivered that. since then we have seen a number of shifts on their position and go more towards the position that said orientation is not something you choose. however, we have drew his acceptance of the president's invitation of the benediction. he for the last decade or so has been one of the biggest voices on endying global slavery at least in the christian community and didn't want it to be a distraction from the main focus on his ministry hoo f he gives that benediction. he withdrew and said i don't want this to be the focus of my small piece of the inaugural
11:08am
ceremony. the president changed his position on gay marriage. she now for it and in support of it. a lot of folks in the lgbt community were upset about his selection in the first place. >> mayor, i will cut you short. i want to get back to this school shooting. the shooter apprehended and multiple injuries. he is a public information officer with the sheriff's department. are you with me? >> i'm here, but i can barely hear you. >> i will speak up. your information is vital to us. me what you know. >> this morning we did have a shooting at taft high school in taft, california. a student was shot on campus. that student has been airlifted to a hospital in bakersfield. we do have a suspect in custody who is also a student. we have recovered a firearm. >> what are kind of firearm? >> a shotgun. >> a shotgun. any other injuries beyond this
11:09am
one student shot on campus? >> no, there were initial reports we might have a second victim, but it doesn't appear that we do. we are still in the process of searching the school and securing the school so that process is ongoing. >> where are the students who were attending taft high school? where are they now? >> i believe there still students on campus. we are still searching building to building because we want to clear the school just to make sure that we don't have suspects outstanding. we still have students on campus. >> take me back to the one student shot on campus. was it inside of a classroom or a building? >> it was inside of the science building, but i don't know if it was in a classroom or a hall way. i don't have that information.
11:10am
>> was it mid-class? >> i don't know. it was sometime this morning. i'm not sure what time it was this morning or if they were in a classroom or a hall way between classes. i don't know. >> just to confirm, one victim, the one student injured, airlifted to a hospital. one single injury? >> that's the information that we have at this point, yes. >> i know this is very, very early, but any connection between the student who was shot and the student shooter? >> we don't have information on that at this point. >> final question of other schools in the area on lockdown? what's the status? >> that i don't know. i don't know if we lockdown the other schools in the taft area or not. >> ray pruitt from the kern county sheriff's department. we thank you so much for calling in. give us a call back if you hear anything else. that is new information we got from this school shooting.
11:11am

11:14am
flying around in invisible pieces. i see i'm a little piece of a big, big universe. >> she has got a huge first day. despite her pint sized figure, she is the youngest nominee ever for best actress. she never acted before in her life. in fact, she was 5 when she got the role of hush puppy in beast of the southern wild. let me bring in rotten tomatoes, welcome. >> hello. i have been up forever already. >> i bet you have. we appreciate you staying up. this is important for folks in the afternoon. does she have a shot at winning? >> hands down unequivocally yes. that movie was made by her. i have to be honest. i am not sure i still understand the movie and i saw it sometime
11:15am
ago. >> explain it to us. >> i wish i could. she plays hush puppy, this girl at the center of louisiana right when a hurricane hits and her family and everyone she lives with basically goes under. everyone abandons them. it's her journey. it's gorgeous and thetography is spectacular. snubbed o snubbed for best score which is something to watch. she at 5 years old it's only downhill from here. what heartless nominee or number is going to vote against this amazing little girl that carried an entire movo her back? >> that's incredible. how do do you that at 5 years old? i read all about it and i need to see it. one movie i loved and it got snubbed is argo. ben affleck. not nominated. what's going on? >> his prior affiliation with j-lo has come back to haunt him. >> no, no.
11:16am
>> not true. argo has gotten a lot of other nominations including best suspecting actor and screen play among others. ben affleck not on the list of best director. that's really bizarre because a film like argo where you know the ending was really created by his way of making tension -- >> i couldn't breathe the whole time. i was so nervous. >> exactly. i felt like i too was in the movie in iran as a hostage. the only thing i can figure out is he is an actor turned director and the academy is trying to do a favor by separating him from the fellow. >> gray, gray. she didn't act.
11:17am
zero dark 30. no dies. >> another snub. zero dark 30 is similar to argo. you know the ending and it is quite an achievement in direction. this movie has so much tension and is this slow burn up to an enormous finish that i think was made largely in part because of katherine bigelow. she won for "the hurt locker" and she is spectacular, but she should have been recognized for this. i say shame on the academy for that one. >> the host, seth mcfarland is amazing with voices. you saw this since you have been up since the crack of dawn. i want to get your reaction to his jokes this morning. we will play something and my question to you is did he swing and connect or was it a swing and a miss? roll it. >> he was coproduced in austria and germany. the last time they got and coproduced something, this was much better. i highly recommend it.
11:18am
>> so much better. >> for best achievement in directing, the nominees are, david o russell for silver lining playbook and ang lee for life of pie. steven spielberg for lincoln. michael haneke and ben zeitlin. these are the five people who are the best at sitting in a chair watching other people make a movie. >> and? how did he do? >> she one for two. i think making a hitler joke in the oscar nominations was a daring choice. >> yeah. i know. >> i know it's not going to be hard to imagine i can get behind that kind of humor and think the academy needs that kind of pizazz this year and having him announce the academy award nominations was a really good
11:19am
move. they haven't done that for 30 years. i think this was like foreplay for the big act that will come in a month. >> i was going to go with audition. we can go with that. >> both of those things are really the same thing. and we can look forward to a little bit classier version of a family guy episode. seth mcfarland is a singer. he sings standards and knows how to put on a good suit and class up the joint. >> i think classy and family guy is an ox oxymoron. y wool talk more oscars in a skbit joe biden is meeting with movie executives about gun control. i'm going to speak with the former chairman of the motion picture association of america

11:24am
>> congressman, what do you make of that point? >> you just showed the oscar awards hoopla before this particular spot. the fact of the matter is that there all sorts of good movies, bad movies, entertaining movies and by and large, hollywood does a good job of letting parents know through the ratings system what kind of movie is coming out whether it's sexual or violent conduct. if you look at the oscar nominees from lincoln to beasts of the southern wild to all sorts of things, it's great diversity in product. there violent movies, no question about it. i don't think the abundance of movies put out by the entertainment industry caused violence. >> i hear you and i hear your opinion, but i had a movie critic talking to me about multiple violent movie skpes saw texas chain saw 3d and rated "r"
11:25am
and said they should be rated as nc 17 and reaches that over sex. that was his opinion. i want to point out as you served the good people for nine terms and lost your bid for reelection in 1994. me why you think you were not reelected. >> there were a lot of reasons, but one reason is because i voted for the crime bill of nor that had the assault weapons provision in it. i would vote for it again and thought it was the right thing to do. it's a sensitive issue, particularly in rural areas and small towns where most gun owners are law abide and see this issue as a threat. the ownership and enjoyment of guns. there is no question there types of guns and ammunition that shouldn't be in the hands of a lot of people, particularly mentally deranged people. i hope the issue doesn't go away, but it's a sensitive issue and has to be done without demonizing or making enemies out
11:26am
of people who own firearms. >> you voted in favor of this ban back in 1994. here's my next question. if biten's plans aden's plans a do you think there is a difference now versus 1994 and what is it? >> the shooting of the children at an elementary school gives human character to the problem. >> we have human character for years with all due respect. >> innocent kids being shot adds something, but let's be honest. this is a politically difficult subject in some parts of the country. it has to be handled with care. i think there is a way to deal with firearms legislation and to do it sensibly and responsibly and get it through congress. one way is to make sure we don't demonize the opposition that there is only good or bad in the situation. these are complicated problems and we really as a society need
11:27am
to deal with the issue. through the white house and congress is done in a way that we don't take advantage of calling somebody just terrible names because they own and possess firearms. i think the people are more sophisticated than they might have been 20 or 30 years ago. >> what would you say if you were in that meeting with the vice president? >> phi were the vice president, i would say where can we come together. where are the things we can do to keep guns out of mentally deranged people and sensibly to have people from preventing military-style weapons to engage in hunting operations. >> dan glickman, former chair of the npaa, thank you. >> thank you very much. >> after junior seau killed himself, the family gave his brain to science. the results are in and they found abnormalities. i will explain.

shall we get undressed? >> the session is based on a true story. i spoke with the real life sex surrogate, cheryl cohen greene around this time after the sundance film festival. >> my job is to help a person who is not sick or broken, just like all of us, myself included, to have a better understanding of their sexuality. we don't get a lot of good training and conversation when we are growing up about it and a lot of people come to their sexual feelings and desires from a sense of shame and embarrassment. >> for some viewers, i have to ask what is the difference between what you do and the oldest profession? >> well, my intention is very different. my intention is to not have clients come back. it's an education process that can be a lot of fun and it can be anxiety-provoking which is good because we work with the
11:58am
therapist around the anxiety that might be happening during our sessions. the focus is to help a person go out into the world feeling much better about who they are so they can share that with another person. >> i want to talk about the film. we mentioned the film based on your experience counselling this one man in particular. this poet, mark o'brien who got polio with a child and spent his live n an iron lung and you helped him lose his virginity at age 36. >> he said he had never been touched in any way but to wash him or do a procedure. the first time i touched his to find out where he was sensitive, as i was coming down his chest, i felt like i wanted to kiss him there. it was vulnerable and he was very slim. it just kim into my mind as i wanted to do that and i did and when i looked up he had tears in his eyes and it makes me feel like crying when i remember it.
11:59am
he was such a good person. he told me how much it meant to him to have that part of his body touched because he was self conscious about it and didn't think anybody would do that. >> we will have much more on the oscar nominations including jane lynch from glee. she is going to talk to me live here and talk about her role in the movie wreck it ralph. >> top of the hour, i'm brooke baldwin. back to the developing story out of taft, california. reports of a school shooting. let me bring in george howell. we talked about the last hour. we talked to someone from the sheriff's department here in town. what more do you know? >> the cnn newsroom has been in touch to learn that there will be a 3:00 p.m. press conference. >> 3:00 p.m. eastern? >> eastern time. we understand that this is a student who walked into the school with a shotgun to shoot
12:00pm
another student. we know one student has been shot and airlifted to the hospital. there is a report according to kero tv there was a person injury and refused treatment. this point at least one person was taken to the hospital. this happened around 9:00 this morning on the west coast. we understand that police arrived and searched the building and took the shooter into custody about 20 minutes after they got there. he is in custody and they spent time searching the building just to make sure they accounted for everyone. >> i want to go on the scene to let everyone know what the pio from the sheriff's department told me. there had been one student shot and he said as far as he knew, just one injury. the suspect was a student again as you pointed out using a shotgun. i will go to you. me where you are specifically and what you are know. >> i am standing outside the
12:01pm
building across the street from the science building where police tell us the shooting occurred. right next to the building is the school auditorium. the doors are open. you can see teachers holding up signs. a through l, l through p. they are trying to organize students inside the auditorium and we are starting to see students start to exit the auditorium. i'm standing on the same side and you can hear a lot of voices next to me. a lot of the parents here are on one side of the tape, extremely upset. the school was on lockdown. we understand that the kids are going to start coming out on their own and going to get started reconnecting to the parents. it will be interesting that i found out, a neighbor that lives across the street from the science building saw and this is again a witness and we haven't confirmed this, but she saw a young man, someone who looked like a student walk into the
12:02pm
school with a short gun. she thought it was a toy gun, but she heard two very loud shots shortly after that. this is very much an active scene. we are looking at the teachers, holding up the signs trying to get the students organized as the students get reconnected with the very, very anxious and upset parents. >> let me ask you one more question. early on as in cases like this when it's fluid, different numbers come out as far as a number injured. i'm hearing now from this public information officer from the county one injury. does that jive with what you heard? >> we have heard that there has been one person airlifted. the same whom said she saw a young man walking to the school with the short gun, she said that there was another student taken to the hospital, but that the injuries were not that severe. again, all of this very fluid.
12:03pm
we are looking at witnesses and we know the stories change later on. as far as what police are telling us, one person has been airlifted to the hospital. >> i will let you get more information. if you get something new, call back in. thank you very much. we want to turn to the center i know a lot of people were talking about a number of months ago. junior seau and the team of scientist who is analyzed his brain tissue discovered he had a debilitating brain disease. doctors believe the former nfl all-star linebacker who took his own life just last may had this disease known as cte caused by two decades of taking hard hits to the head. i'm joined by the chief medical correspondent and neurosurgeon, sanjay gupta and players are suing the nfl.
12:04pm
welcome. >> thank you. >> let me begin with you, dr. gupta. the story broke on the show in may, his suicide. now we learn about this brain disease. can we connect this? >> there is an association now. people want the direct cause and effect relationship. it's just a hard thing to establish. it takes decades to establish that sort of thing even between smoking and lung cancer it. took a long time to establish. the same here. we know there is an association and the cte that you are describing, chronic traumatic ensev lop earth. people have that happen in their seventh and eighth decade of, but it's happening younger. it is caused by hits to the head. there is this triad and remember reporting that it was sad and this depression and anger and
12:05pm
impulsivity and memory loss. the three things are what mark cte and people and family members and friends describe when someone is alive. as hard as it is to talk about, he shot himself in the chest. dave duerson said he wanted his brain study and people surmised that might have been the same with junior seau. >> i see this brain and want to talk about what this is when and what they found. drew, to you, you are involved in one of these cases. why sue the nfl? >> there seems to be a body of work available. in 2002, the relationship between cte and the death of mike webster was brought forth by an independent physician. from 2002 to 2007 they did a study with physicians advising the nfl and they were dismissive of that study, referring it very
12:06pm
unnice terms what they thought of the science involved. because of that dismissiveness and the fact that the nfl has been flourishing during this period of time, this lawsuit is brought on behalf of player who is say we success fiz ourselves physically for you and we need to be compensated like another workforce where there is a disease attributed to the workplace. >> the nfl is a profitable enterprise. these guys, they get their bell rung week after week. we don't know what the results of these cases, what may happen. how could this impact the nfl in general? >> this is what i would say. since 09 when the nfl came up with a certain number of results to govern how head jurisdiction are handled, they have stepped up and we are really looking historically and the reason we are is these players were the foundation of this industry that is spinning off not millions,
12:07pm
but billions of dollars. it's this foundation, these people that constitute the foundation that need to be compensated. i say this to the viewers. who can name their favorite ten offensive line men? nobody can name any of these guys, but they were just in full physical contact with their heads for years and years and sustained terrible injuries. >> sanjay gupta, we have the brain. tell me where this is found exactly. >> the interesting thing is they relate this to concussions, but it doesn't have to be concussions that can cause this thing in the brain. is it can be the hits that drew is alluding to where he gets up and seemingly nothing is wrong. they can accumulate overtime. we are talking about a specific area of the brain and the area that the hippo campus is responsible for memory and storing memories.
12:08pm
that's why forgetfulness is one of the symptoms of this. i saw this firsthand as well with the labs where they are looking at this. this protein is something we think of with regard to alzheimer's. a picture is worth a thousand words. on the left is a normal brain. the brown spots on the bottom right, the brain with cte, the brown spots is the protein that accumulates in the brain. again, you see this with alzheimer's-like diseases, but junior was 43 years old. >> thank you. it's sad. now to this. a short time ago, joe biden announced he will have gun recommendations on the president's desk by next tuesday. he just finished meeting with the gun rights defenders and the nra in remarks before the session. he seemed to suggest the
12:09pm
killings at sandy hook elementary school four weeks ago tomorrow brought the nation to a turning point. >> there is nothing that has gone to the heart of the matter more than the visual image of little 6-year-old kids riddled, not shot with a stray bullet, but riddled, riddled with bullet holes. >> joining me now from new york, cnn, fareed, you and i haven't even talked since the shootings in sandy hook. 20 kids, six adults shot dead. we haven't spoken since the president declared these tragedies have to end. do you think that the vice president is right? has something changed because of this, keeping in mind we had debates before and nothing really happened. >> the country is clearly changing, brooke. i think sandy hook has been a
12:10pm
huge turning point and there is a shift of consciousness. we are becoming more aware of just how a nomulous the u.s. is. we have 30,000 gun deaths a year and most countries have a few hundred. we have 10,000 gun homicides a year. england and wales have i think 35 or 40. we are beginning to realize that. the question is, will the political system change? there is still such a powerful lobby. there so many entrenched interests that have gutted and traditionally gutted any effort. they block it and if it happens, they riddle it with exceptions and loopholes so the real challenge will be to take this shift in national consciousness and drive it through to make it a shift in policy. >> riddled with holes and mayor bloomberg calling it swiss cheese. he alarmed defenders by saying a package might include an
12:11pm
executive order. that seemed to strike some as ominous, but our legal analyst said it's not a big deal. >> president obama cannot impose an assault weapons ban. congress has to do that. only congress can pass a law. all an executive order can do is use power that congress has given to the president in a different law. >> you have a limit to what the president can do himself and as soon as you say the two words, gun control, you have members of congress that start fleeing for the exits. is the problem too big for the government? >> i don't think it's too big for the government. i think it's too big for the politicians, by which i mean we know what the solution is. this is one of the cases where people say it's complex. it's not. australia put in place a ban on all automatic and semi automatic
12:12pm
weapons. gun homicide has gone down 60%. why? there is a real ban. they didn't have 600 exemptions like our 94 assault weapons ban had. we know what to do. they could do this effectively. the question is will they have the courage to protect our children? >> tell me about your special speaking of challenges the president faces. you assembled heavy hitters to talk about the challenges with president obama during term number two. >> he is only the 17th president to have a second term. these generally don't go so well. we talk to former secretaries of state and chiefs of staff and asked what would you do to snake this a successful second term? they have surprising answers. >> what would you do? thank you. programming reminder on the special memo to the president. 1:00 p.m. eastern.
12:13pm
as he names replacements, none is say woman. i'm brooke wald win. the news is now. listen up, homeowners. the feds introducing rules that can make it harder for you to get a mortgage. plus one group wants to see pictures of osama bin laden's body. now a court is hearing its case against the president. and -- >> the nominees are -- >> the glitz, the glamour, the controversy. some big names left off the oscar list. you will hear them right after this.

. it is the biggest debt most of us ever take on. a mortgage. we all watched the mortgage melt down. whether you are a homeowner or renter, it affected all of us by bringing on the great recession. today the government's consumer watch dog, the financial
12:16pm
protection agency announced the new rules for home loans. what are they supposed the to do? protect borrowers from getting loans they can't afford and protect lender fres lawsuits. let me run through this for you. you have no more down payment loans. no more qualifying for a loan at artificially low teaser rates. no more so-called low doc or no doc loans. borrowers and total debt cannot exceed 43% of income and loans cannot be longer than 30 years. we are nodding our heads. he rights for a column on sunday. atlanta journal and constitution newspaper. welcome. >> thank you. >> what are the changes? all the new rules, what does it mean for if you are buying or refinancing? >> it will be more difficult to
12:17pm
get a loan than five or seven years ago. everybody know that is the lending environment was too loose. anybody could walk in and you didn't have to prove income and you could probably get it with no down payment. that department make sense. huh no skin in the game and so many loans went bad. the pendulum has swung and the lenders are worried that if they make loans now that they have financial liability. the rule is the ability to repay. if the borrower does not demonstrate the ability o ability to repay, the loan goes bad and the lender can be charged. >> this protects the lender as well. >> exactly. if they use these new rules that everybody will, it will be designated a qualified borrower. qualified borrowers are like preapproved by fannie mae and we
12:18pm
will take loan and if it goes bad, it's our fault, not yours. >> how does it affect the howing market? >> not good. a lot of the market depends on first time home buyers. these are people who most need help. they tend not to have much in the way of a down payment and tend not to have the best credit in the world. they are just getting started. >> right. >> builders frequently offered these adjustable rate mortgages with teaser rates to get them into the house and get started. as we talk about in real estate, once you are on the ladder, you may be on the bottom rung, but when it moves, you are still on it. this is going to make it harder for people who don't own real estate and have not established themselves financially to grab on to that bottom rung. >> what if you are very, very low on the ladder, say under water on your mortgage. does this affect you? >> no. you can't borrow anyway. e problem is now, only the
12:19pm
most qualified borrowers that have a large amount of cash and a solid gold credit score and traditional provable income are going to get loans today. if you are like me and have non-traditional income or self-employed or that type of thing, it will be difficult. if you don't have a big chunk of change to put down, it will be very difficult. woe be unto you if you are looking for a jumbo mortgage that exceeds the limit and they are changing it, but around 340,000. good luck with that. >> we will read your column. thank you sir. >> my pleasure. >> by the way, we heard about his special on president obama's second term. that special airs 8:00 p.m. eastern sunday night right here on cnn. >> top secret classified photos of osama bin laden's body. coming up next, you are about to hear from the head of the group suing the president to release the photos.

12:22pm
. a federal appeals court heard a case today about someone who was america's most hated man. osama bin laden, the terrorist leader who was killed two years ago. the president proclaimed it multiple movies chronicled it. they want the government to release all 52 photos of bin laden's body from the killing to the burial at sea. the watch was turned down, but just this morning its lawyers made an appeal to three federal judges in d.c. and inside that
12:23pm
hearing room was tom. welcome. why do you want the photos released? >> the law requires it. this is basic information about the death of osama bin laden, the most important military victory frankly in the wire against terrorism. the administration wants to withhold the documents because it might upset foreign populations to get the terrorists upset. we don't think you can throw aside our nation's transparency laws because doing so would upset the terrorists. what other law dos we throw aside? >> we have to read what the white house spokesperson said at the time. it is not in our interest to allow the images to be icons to rally within against the united states when we talk about and hear from the white house and the possible consequences of releasing the photos that might inflame the arab world and the men and women fighting overseas.
12:24pm
they may be in harm's way. do you not believe that could happen? >> it may happen, but we don't know it's going to happen. >> why do you want to take that chance? >> the law requires the release of this information. it's more important that we follow our laws that give the people access to information about what the government is doing. than to say we are not going to allow the american people to allow what the government is doing. doing so might upset the terrorists. everything we do upsets the terrorists. what other laws shouldn't we follow. the government for instance in withholding the information cited a false news week publication and the publication of cartoons. the implication is maybe we shouldn't do those things and maybe the government should sensor that. >> why would you want that to happen if you look at the outroar from the silly you tube video mocking the prophet mohamed last year. you had the riots globally.
12:25pm
why do you want to take that chance? is it about the law or do you not believe he is dead? >> it is about the law. i believe he is dead. the obama administration and other information about the bin laden death and we will have a motion picture in part of the obama administration extolling the victory there. that's fine. then to go ahead and say we can't have the basic information is ridiculous. one of the judges said that benghazi video caused the death of an ambassador. this is an example. government putting out a line that turned out to be false. the video actually did result in a death of the ambassador when it was something else. they have excuses to go after us and we should follow the law and blame the terrorists if they do anything inappropriate, but we can't throw out the laws because they don't like the results. >> as you point out, you mention what a judge said in the hearing room. how confident will it be?
12:26pm
what happens next in the process? >> will be a few months before the court ruled against us. the courts are differential to the federal government in matters like this. let's be clear. never before as the government sought to successfully withhold information simply because it would upset outsiders like the obama administration is alleging here. this would be rewriting law. for both the american people's right to know and the first amendment and by the press. if the government withholds information because it might upset folks. >> if you win, if the pictures are released, what would you do with them? >> they would be made available to the public. >> how so? >> cnn can run them. they would be available on the internet or everywhere we could. folks who wanted access to this information. the law requires that access be
12:27pm
given. if they want to withhold information that relates to intelligence, that's appropriate. for instance, the burial of bin laden where he is put in a sheet and wrapped and on the aircraft carrier, how is that inflammatory? >> what's the take away for the average american to see a photograph of bin laden dead? we know he is dead. why do we need to see evidence? >> it's not for us to judge whether or not we need the information. the government is required to give it to us under law. if the government said you can't have information because you don't need it, that's not a republican form of government. that's a government that is at odds with american values. >> president of judicial watch, thank you. >> thank you, brooke. >> let me name drop for a second. john kerry, chuck hagel and now

. the president's labor secretary announced her resignation yesterday. the same day it just so happened that this photograph appeared on the front of the "new york
12:31pm
times." take a look with me. take a long look. all men. so it appears at this fiscal cliff meeting convened by the president. you look closely enough and you can see the leg of white house adviser valerie jarrett. that is valerie jarrett's leg obscured by the man in corduroys. today democrat charlie rangle is quoted as saying it is embarrassing as hell. the shape of president obama's second term. not enough women. the chief political analyst, gloria, a lot of talk about hillary clinton leaving being replaced by a male. leaving the epa. you have the positions going to men. is this a problem for the president?
12:32pm
>> the second where she was hidden by the communications director is not the kind of optics this white house would like. when you talk to them, they are quite defensive about it as one would imagine. they throw out the statistics. they are women and this is a president and 47% of the nominees that have been confirmed the. he nominated two and on and on. this is a problem for them though. because that was photograph and the core log rave of all of this transition has been handled not as smoothly as they would probably like. you had the fiscal cliff in the middle of things, right? >> right, but -- >> all appointments did not move the way they wanted. they department get susan rice
12:33pm
and put michelle in at defense. some wanted. you talk about the photograph, but let me share another photo. this one, this was the original photo published in the times taken december 27th. the white house countered with the second photo. the same for the president. you have -- you can spot them here. >> where the girls are. >> this is the oval office. as you point out and talked to the white house, they are defensive here. >> they are. they are defensive about it. it's dleer they don't like the pictures that don't show a lot of women. they argue that women have a lot of input and they are important. by the way, janet napolitano runs security and you have susan
12:34pm
rice at the united nations. it's not as if this is a wasteland without women in this d main station. my sources say that they haven't filled the commerce job. then you put someone in the situation of say a woman is appointed to fill commerce, the question is asked, did she get that because she was a woman? >> or is she the best qualified. >> i think the people are obviously qualified so hopefully that conversation would not occur. this is just not chatter they would like to have right now. by the way, today when we saw jack lew be nominated as treasury secretary, one of the reasons we didn't see the array of the economic team is because it's male.
12:35pm
thank you very much. we want to take you back on the subject of the school shooting in kern county, california. a student apparently shooting another opportunity in the science building. happening now. let's listen in. >> 911 calls started coming in of shots fired at taft high school. taft police department was the initial responding agency and had two units on scene within 60 seconds. there was an active shooter that didn't show up for school this morning for the first period. he then interrupted the class halfway through it armed with a shotgun. he fired the first round striking another student who is at the hospital. a 16-year-old in critical condition, but stable at this point. he tried to engage a second student he named and tried to shoot him and missed. the teacher at that point was trying to get the students out of the classroom and engage the
12:36pm
shooter who had numerous rounds of shotgun shells. numerous rounds in his pockets and engaged the suspect in conversation. the supervisor showed up and they engaged in conversation with this young man and at one point he put the shotgun down and police officers were able to take him into custody. during the melee of children trying to get out, we had one student that had it fired close to her ear. she has possible hearing damage. another student fell over the tables trying to get out. she received minor injuries. that's where we are at. i would like to introduce the chief of police, ed whiting. >> this was in taft, california. a couple of injuries, one student airlift and others minor at taft high school in california. the shooter is in custody.

>> jook lieu is a picture for treasury and what you need to know about the debt ceiling and california teachers say no to guns. first president obama is just nominated jacob jack lew to be
12:40pm
the next treasury secretary. lew has been the chief of staff and described as a consummate washington insider. he has done two stints at the office of management and budget. an old cog eel of his told me yet experience makes him the perfect choice for the job right now. >> it is described as the central nervous system and everything of consequence goes through it. it coordinates the branch for the president like the chief operating officer role. in that, jack has been exposed to every type of policy and issue and regulation. it's a huge gambit of issues and terrain that he is an expert on the depth he can bring on a number of issues, especially economic policy. >> that makes lew more than qualified to negotiate the debt
12:41pm
debates and republicans in congress. wall street doesn't like him so much. who cares what wall street thinks. to many that makes him more palatable. the president made the right choice with tim geitner because the world was teetering on financial collapse. he knew the ins and outs of wall street and global credit and he can hit the ground running. the debate is about the debt ceiling. ke sequester and budgets. no learning for lew. he is qualified to take on the budget battles about to engulf washington right now. on the money menu, china sees trade soar in diagram. before you change the channel, understand that china's gain is a sign that things are picking up here in the united states. exports jumped 14% at the end of the year compared to 12 months ago. that's important because the economy has been slowing down for seven quarters likely
12:42pm
because of malaise. i have been saying things are starting to look up for the u.s. economy in 2013 and a boost in imports is one of the indicators that tend to confirm the sentiment. the one thing that could ruin this is the battle on capitol hill. democrats and republicans resulted to tactics that cost the u.s. the iron clad credit rating. the economy suffered. president obama will want the tax revenue hikes to any spending cuts that republicans insist on. to do that they would have to tap into politically sensitive deductions and for perspective, the deducks and exclusions cost $1.1 trillion a year. most benefit individuals, especially those in the middle class. something you need to know as the debt ceiling debates unfolds and something we will be watching. the backlash to the gun industry
12:43pm
over last month's mass shooting in connecticut is growing. yesterday wal-mart took a beating over the decision to dodge the white house's invitation to talk about guns. today, now one of the largest public pension funds out there for school teachers said it will divest itself of investments in makers of firearms and ammunition that are illegal to purchase or own in the state of california that has some of the toughest gun laws in the country. christine romans has been following this. what's the latest? >> the largest retirement fund for teachers in the world, the retirement system will sell its stock in gun manufacturers. you may recall after the newtown shooting, teachers in california were shocked to learn that their investments, row tirement investments were in the manufacture of the gun used to kill the students and teachers in newtown, connecticut. here's what they said.
12:44pm
this incident occurred@sky that involved educators and the children we cherish speaks to the correctness of actions. this is not only the right thing to do, but positions us to deal with the financial pressures we anticipate this sector of the industry will face. some of those gun manufacturing stocks have been down today. down because you have washington very focused now on these hearings about what to do about gun violence in america. ali? >> christina stayed focused on the issue of money and guns. for more indepth coverage, tune in to your money from the cnn money newsroom in new york. same time tomorrow. i'm out. right in the old bucket. good toss! see that's much better! that was good. you had your shoulder pointed, you kept your eyes on your target. let's do it again -- watch me. just like that one...
